I am looking for a clean, simple design that conveys 1) personal growth blog and 2) different angle: instead of ordinary inspirational/emotional appeal ("classical self improvement blogs"), I want a big more edgy, modern look.
My unique angle will be to combine elements of management, business strategy and personal development, so a good blend of that rational/analytical element with that simple beauty of a Gingko Leaf could be a perfect combination. In other words: inspiration and abstract concepts conveyed through a business approach.
Experiment please with autumn Gingko colors (yellowish tones) or Spring time (greenish) so I can see what might look more catchy. But feel free to experiment with two colors in one leaf if it looks beautiful.
Keyword groups to think about when assessing the feel/design:
- Personal growth, inspiration, motivation, big life questions, happiness, meaning, peace of mind
- Nature, harmony, Asian, Zen, Buddhism
- Business, efficiency, effectiveness, analysis, hypothesis, metrics, results
- Authentic, innovative, fresh, disruptive, honest
